Not everyone thinks about their septic systems a lot as long as they are working okay. It’s when they aren’t working that a lot of attention is brought to them. It’s when they start to smell bad or back up that the entire neighborhood may pay attention. That is why you want to make sure your system is maintained on a regular schedule. However, there are also things that you don’t want to do to your septic system so that you don’t have a sudden problem.
Avoid Killing Your Septic System
Here are some things not to do to your septic system so you don’t need premature repairs:
- Be careful what you flush down the toilet and put down your drains because you can clog your system.
- Don’t use excessive bleach and fillers in your laundry.
- Don’t ignore a soggy drain field.
- Don’t ignore fast grass growth around your drain field.
- Don’t plant trees near your septic tank or drain field.
